The Ringling College of Art and Design COVID-19 Dashboard helps us to track and analyze the impact of COVID-19 on the overall health of our campus community and our ability to appropriately respond to change during these unprecedented times.

To date, the Ringling College community - students, faculty, and staff - have done a remarkable job working together and following CDC guidelines to keep our campus community as safe as possible. We thank you for your continued support and cooperation, and will continue to communicate updates with you as we move forward into the fall semester.

The Dashboard is updated regularly and reflects the responses from students, faculty, and staff on vaccination status, and based on responses, the vaccination status of the campus community.

More Information, and Previous COVID-19 Communications & Vaccine Status

*Campus Update: The College is currently reviewing President Biden's executive order requiring vaccination or weekly testing of employees who are unvaccinated. The College has more than 100 employees, so would be required to comply with the anticipated rule from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). As a result, vaccinations may be required in the future and the current testing protocol for individuals who have not been vaccinated may increase from every other week to weekly testing in order to comply. We will keep our campus community informed of decisions around COVID-19 vaccines and testing protocols.
